We had a great walk along the waterfront on the Sunday morning, the sun was shining and there is so much to take in along the way. Great way to spend some time out while visiting the city.

Went to see Tommy Tiernan, excellent show! Staff were helpful, seating was excellent and the facilities were all top notch. Only issue was the queue at the bar and the lack of draft beer.

We went to see a show in the Waterfront between Christmas and New Year. We had excellent seats in one of the upper tiers with uninterrupted views of the stage.

Great night out at the Queen tribute act Flash Harry, brilliant show, fantastic venue and very good bar facilities, if just a little expensive for my liking.

While the Waterfront itself is a good venue for concerts etc the food unfortunately is not up to the same standard. I attended a 2 day conference recently. The food was poor and there was very little flexibility for those of us who like plain food. I won't be revisiting in a hurry.

Super super show the nearest thing you will get to a London west end show in Belfast. Music arrangement with mix of young and trained voices is exceptional. This is the 3rd year we have gone and Christmas for me starts with this show.

Just saw Passenger play in the Waterfront, good venue. Did not know there was seating, will get seating next time I visit. Left a few minutes before the show finished to get a taxi, as apparently it is difficult to get a taxi after with the crowds. Drinks are very VERY expensive. £9 for one beer and one wine... Security... More

I have been to a few concerts at the waterfront and have always found service at both downstairs and upstairs bars to be very slow. I went to watch Passenger last night and faced a long wait at the bar to buy drinks as staff were very slow, some younger staff were unable to pour pints and all eight members... More
